New Mexicans and Texans fight over who invented this famous concoction. I think it was a group effort — Chicano food at its very best! Lori and Malena “hacked” it with ground turkey instead of beef, but it has so much red chile that no one will ever know you didn’t use beef. It’s a lot healthier and just as delicious.

This recipe falls squarely in the ‘Poquito de Todo’ category. We don’t want to give up our beloved foods but we want to go easy on the portion sizes! One cup is plenty! Have a delicious salad as your primer plato or segundo plato. Use the Fritos like a garnish and not like a staple.

This one will take you home, sister!

Makes 6 cups. 1 serving = 1 cup.
